Isn’t it ironic how we “clean” our homes? We dump chemicals all over our floors and counters…and then mop and scrub to our heart’s content. And then we eat off those same counters and bathe in those same tubs and put our babies on those same floors. Scary…
Now I’m not saying that we should give up cleaning our homes altogether (that would be double gross…), but I do think that perhaps we could be a bit more conscientious about the products that we use. For example, we have a Swiffer in our house and I’ve all but stopped using it because that strong odor always infiltrates our house and makes me a bit nauseous…that can’t be good.
Lately, I’ve mostly been using Seventh Generation products. The scents are light (which I like) and they seem to do a good job.
“Seventh Generation brand-name products include: non-chlorine bleached, 100% recycled paper towels, bathroom and facial tissues, and napkins; non-toxic, phosphate-free cleaning, dish and laundry products; plastic trash bags made from recycled plastic; chlorine-free baby diapers, training pants, and baby wipes; and chlorine-free feminine care products, including organic cotton tampons.”
